Fresh British Raspberries.

probably originated in Eastern Asia and it was not until the 17th
Century that the fruit became popular. By the 18th Century cookery
writers  were devising recipes using the fruit for raspberry wine and vinegar, sweets  and jams.

Scotland is famous for its raspberry growing and in the late fifties raspberries were  taken from Scotland to Covent Garden, London on a steam train known as the Raspberry Special.
